My grim path is carved in shadows
there's no light I'm meant to see
I've been gifted to the gallows
only they can set me free

a mouth of ashes lies inside
slowly eating every bit
all my feelings are denied
by this darkness it has lit

on my path to certain death
every thought becomes a blade
slashing poison to my breath
cutting hope until it fades

now that every dream is slain
something still remains unclear
the jaws have feasted me away
yet I've never disappeared

I keep hurling to that ground
to the end for which I ran
but every time I turned around
I was right where I began
